TODAY'S COMMAND TO OBEY:
Today, we're examining the command of Jesus in Matthew 6:1-4, where Jesus says,
“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
How can a Christian truly keep this command? Watch the video above to learn how, and spend time praying over how you can obey this command of Jesus.
Check in with a mentor to supercharge your discipleship!
Reach out: The Bible says to “submit to one another in the fear of God.” (Ephesians 5:21) If there’s something that you’ve been not listening to your mentor (or your pastor) on because you just disagree, try listening and obeying even if you’re not sure it’s necessary. Might surprise you. ~ Darrell
How can I multiply disciple-makers in my church, no matter what size it might be?
You’ll never multiply disciple-makers without a clear and simple plan for discipling new believers! If you need one, you can use the discipleship strategy created by NewStart Discipleship to provide a clear pathway for discipling. This makes it possible to not only disciple effectively, but to multiply disciple-makers.
New Christians that LAST and are TRANSFORMED don’t just happen, any more than babies just happen to survive! So, if you have hopes for discipling new Christians, you need a plan that will help give you clarity on how you can help them grow as new believers.
